Writer – Daily Dose

DUBNetwork is looking for a writer who wants to cover the Western Hockey League with a focus on the daily transactions of current and former players as well as news regarding goings-on around the league and any other relevant WHL news.

The DUBNetwork team frequently assists the Daily Dose writer with scouring the internet for details on little-known news tidbits. 

This position requires someone capable of writing articles later in the evening for publication early the next morning. 

At this time, the Daily Dose writer is a volunteer position while DUBNetwork continues to work towards a revenue-generating model.
